In this class, I guide you through the essentials of learning to play the electric guitar. The course starts with learning about what gear you’ll need and ends with learning how to write your own music on guitar.

This class is designed for absolute beginners with no prior experience playing electric guitar as well as for folks wanting to brush up on the basics of the instrument.

If you’ve been wanting to learn how to play electric guitar but have been putting it off because you’re not sure how to get started, then this class is for you. The goal of this class is to get you playing electric guitar as quickly as possible. Once you complete this course, you’ll have the basics in place so that you can start learning how to play your favorite songs and riffs and even create your own music.

Included in this class are many downloadable resources: tips for tuning your guitar, warm up exercises, chord diagrams, scales and sheet music, as well as an audio recording for you to play along with.

In order to take this class, you’ll need an electric guitar, guitar amplifier, instrument cable and a tuner (you can use a free tuning app for your phone or tablet).

In this course, you’ll learn:
